Joshua Kaufman, M.D. Physical Medicine & Rehab

Having a Board Certified Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation physician on staff allows UptownPMR to provide an additional layer of experience to your treatment.

We believe most patients need a balance of chiropractic and traditional medical treatment. When you combine that philosophy with a healthy lifestyle, you get the tools you need for optimum health and healing.

Dr. Kaufman is a key component to our bridge between chiropractic and medical sciences. His years of experience in rehabilitating patients with injuries of all types is critical to UptownPMR’s ability to provide you the right treatment for your prognosis without having to send you all over town.

John Salmon, D.C. Orthopedic Chiropractor

The Greek word ‘ortho’ means straight or correct. As an Orthopedic Chiropractor, Dr. Salmon specializes in the overall musculoskeletal system. This means his chiropractic expertise extends well beyond the treatment of the typical back injury.

Dr. Salmon’s application of chiropractic techniques in issues involving the extremities such as the shoulders, knees, elbows and ankles are used to treat a variety of conditions. One very common issue he treats is Plantar Fasciitis, which is inflammation of the thick tissue on the bottom of the foot.

His specialty and experience contributes tremendously to UptownPMR’s commitment to holistically applying chiropractic and medical sciences together for the benefit of the patient.

Robert Kelly, M.D. General Practice

A General Practice physician with the breadth and experience that Dr. Kelly provides is essential to meeting our goal of having your symptoms properly diagnosed and treated.

Our belief that chiropractic and medical science go hand-in-hand is fused through Dr. Kelly’s years of General Practice and Musculoskeletal medical experience.

His presence ensures that UptownPMR can deliver on its commitment to provide its patients with a plan and the medical services needed to truly allow the health and healing to begin.

 

A.J. Friedman, M.D. Neurologist

Neurology is the branch of medicine concerned with the study and treatment of disorders of the nervous system. The nervous system is a complex, sophisticated system that regulates and coordinates body activities.

With greater than 30 years experience in Neurology, Dr. A.J. Friedman supports UptownPMR’s commitment to provide you with the optimum blend of medical and chiropractic sciences to best treat your condition.

Your nervous system and your musculoskeletal systems are intrinsically linked and Dr. Friedman’s ability to diagnose and treat the neurological conditions associated with your injuries means that you can get the treatment needed without having to visit a separate doctor’s office.

 

Ashfaq Qureshi, M.D. Physical Medicine & Rehab

If you have leg pain or numbness, you may have these tests to find out how much your nerves are being affected. These tests check how well your spinal nerves and the nerves in your arms and legs are working. An electromyogram (EMG) measures the electrical activity of muscles at rest and during contraction. Nerve conduction studies measure how well and how fast the nerves can send electrical signals.

Dr. Qureshi, a Board Certified physician in Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation, performs all of our Nerve Conduction Velocity/Electromyogram (NCV/EMG) studies.

These studies can then be used to develop your customized treatment plan that takes advantage of both medical and chiropractic sciences, getting you well on your way to health and healing.

Bernard A. Landry, M.D. FACR

Ensuring the most accurate diagnosis of your condition requires careful expert attention to detail in reviewing your x-rays. Dr. Landry is a Fellow of the American College of Radiology. This is a distinction that applies to only about 10% of the American College of Radiology’s membership.

As an expert in his field, Dr. Landry is a critical component to bridging the medical and chiropractic sciences at UptownPMR. His participation allows us to custom tailor a specific course of treatment for your unique needs.

Delane Lanier, Director of Operations

In addition to overseeing the day-to-day smooth operation of the clinic, Delane also personally manages all of our Workers Compensation claims. The handling of Workers Compensation cases requires attention to detail and the experience necessary to navigate the sometimes complex bureaucratic process.

UptownPMR’s patients have the peace of mind knowing that they have a dedicated advocate committed to ensuring that their case is properly documented and the administration properly handled.
